Jaitley says LoC violations 'must' stop
Srinagar, June 15: Defence Minister Arun Jaitley is currently on a two-day visit to Srinagar.

Jaitley on Sunday said that violations along the Line of Control must stop and that in itself was a 'Confidence Building Measure'.

He also added that, "There are forces which are inimical to India, which would not like peace to continue".

"Talks and aggression can't go together. For the situation to normalise, it is important for the ceasefire violations to stop," said Jaitley.

"Visited the Army Posts at the LoC in the Haji Pir Area. Our soldiers are doing a commendable job in safeguarding the country," Jaitley said in a tweet after the visit.

LoC - Line of Control - refers to the working boundary between the Indian and Pakistani-controlled parts of Kashmir.

"Our soldiers strive selflessly to maintain the sanctity of the LoC and in responding to any ceasefire violation," he said.

Jaitley's comments during a special security review meeting in Srinagar to discuss internal security, the situation along the LoC and arrangements for the Amarnath Yatra in Jammu, among other issues.
